 You should be able to build and run a -current (or 5.0_STABLE, which
 is not the same as 5.0.2; it will be 5.1 "soon") kernel, including as
 far as I know all the ndis stuff, without changing the rest of the
 If you do try -current, build the MONOLITHIC kernel rather than the
 GENERIC one to avoid having to mess around with installing kernel
 modules. However, if you don't want to get involved with -current,
 5.0_STABLE (the "netbsd-5" branch in CVS) has quite a few fixes that
 aren't in 5.0.2 and may also work.
 (Also note that your mail seems to be arriving pretty mangled -- see -- and this seems to be causing some
 problems here. You may not be able to do anything about it, but if
 there's some preferences setting to be more compliant with internet
 standards it may help.)
